Customer Questions & Answers


Asked by: RB
They have a video online on the Home Depot website, if you type in Defiant 20amp 7 day timer. Watch on a portable device by the switch as it is specific in nature and if you miss a step it will not set correctly.

Is this timer supposed to work with CFLs?

I have three CFL porch lights connected to this timer. The lights turn on, flicker a short while and all three lights go off in less than a minute? Does this timer only work with incandescent light bulbs?
Asked by: Sage
My box outside says that it works with LED and CFL, but when I installed it DOES NOT WORK. The lights are blinking like a strobe. Piece of trash, does not work.

What do I do with the blue wire?

I had a timer there before but I had never seen a timer with a blue wire--what do I do with it?
Asked by: fm
Cap and put electrical tape around if not doing as a three way switch.

20-Amp 7-Day 7-Event In-Wall Digital Timer is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 351.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to Program & Burnedout in less than 6-mos Easy to install with supplied instructions. Then........Tried to program the fountain to go on at 8 AM and off at 10 PM. Difficult to program a simple program. It wanted to vary times at different times of the year, which I did not want. Never did figure out if I had my desired program set. Buttons are microscopic without labels. Then.....After about 6-months the unit burned out - would not turn on pump (only 65 watts power) by the timer or with the manual controls. Waste of time to install it and then to remove it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Burn out quickly I have three of these timers and all have burned out in less than 12 months with a load of less than 100 watts. They are simple to install and somewhat complicated to program but no worse than others on the market. I would look elsewhere, spend a few more dollars for a better unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Digital wall timer review This was fairly easy to install because it was a replacement for one that only lasted 2 months. These work great and are really nice when your away for a couple of days. Hopefully this one lasts longer.

I often leave the house before dark and return after dark. In order to avoid leaving a light on all day and to make the house appear more "lived in" I added timers to some of my light switches. This timer was easy to install, (I'm a mid-sixty year old grandma with little electrical experience) and the timer is easy to program as long as you have the instructions in front of you. The timer has been functioning properly and I really like that I can have multiple programs for different days of the week and different times of the day. Over-riding the timer is easy and you have the option to either override all the timer functions so that it becomes a manual switch or you can do a 'short term' over-rider and the timers will resume the scheduled programing. As with all in wall timers I've encountered, this is a large device and you'll want to make sure you have enough room in your box for all the wires and the timer to properly fit back into the wall box. The only complaint I have with this timer is the programing buttons on the inside of the panel are so incredibly small that it is VERY difficult to read the print on them when i want to add or change a program.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good purchase When working, this is an indispensable timer. I have my front porch lights on it. The really neat thing about it is the auto-adjustment with DST. I actually bought this as a replacement to the last one, which froze up after a year. I'm hoping the last one was a fluke as I really like this timer. Just be prepared for spending some time programing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install... easy program Great timer. Installed within 30 mins and programmed in about 10 mins for the whole week. The install instructions are spot on if you have basic electrical knowledge. The buttons on the device are very small but manageable. Display screen is bright and large enough to read. Great product thus far. Installed and working for about a week or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Good I bought this timer to control an outside light. It was a little bit of a challenge to program but once that was done, no problems. It is adjusting the sunset and sunrise on-off time by itself according to a latitude range setting. You can program that feature or just set it for specific times. So far, so good. It is what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent timer, highly recommended Excellent timer. easy to install and works great. Turns on and off at dusk and dawn, when I want lights on and off automatically. One downside,backside size is a bit big, so if you want to fit it into an old wall outlet, it might be a bit tricky, however when installed, works great. Light is an added extra, thought not very necessary.
